The website is www.nanowrimo.org and sign-up begins on October 1st ... you can browse the old archives right now but they're upgrading and you can't sign in till the 1st. Writing begins on November 1st and lasts till November 30th. The goal is to write a 50,000 word story all in one month. It's great fun!
Wanted to post a heads-up for those who might have forgotten about it, or hadn't heard of it yet, in time for everyone to be able to plan a bit.
I haven't been on here much since the end of the sci-fi writing club, so forgive me if someone already posted about this. Off to browse the forums now!

I came up with an idea a couple days ago that might pan out into something for it ... or I could take a couple characters I've been toying with and toss them into some sort of crucible.
Or ... as I've done in the past, just start writing and see where it goes.
It's an amazing journey, to get out of your head and just write for the sake of getting words on a page.

Still waiting for one of my ideas to solidify into something.

I forgot to check back and see, now that I've been busy with their forums.
Good luck, everyone! I'll keep checking in to see how we're progressing. Anyone needs a buddy over at Nano, let me know.

Seriously though, I might if I'm up to it, and feel like clicking "save" every five seconds as not to loose anything should word quit.
